But, with everything from

dents learn about the code
and then spread the informa-
tion to neighbors.
Code offcers should also let
homeowners know .about

grams that can help pay for
work that must be done, Mr.
Smart said.
In Daytona Beach, code
inspectors regularly attend
community group meetings
and have encouraged people
to help each other, Mr. Sten-
son said.
It's a relationship that has
helped the once-troubled
Mason Park neighborhood -
less than a mile from some of
the worst code violating prop-
erties in the city, the oft-cited,
boarded up homes at Madi-
son Avenue and Mulberry
Street in uptown make a
turnaround in a couple of
years, Mr. Stenson said.
"Code enforcement has
done a terrific job," said Bev
Terry, chair of the Mason Park
At the Seabreeze Point
Apartments, a small blighted
complex where people
"would literally jump in your
carland try to sell you drugs"
before, Mr. Stenson said, it is
now clean and quiet, thanks
to new manager Laurie Stast-
"This is one of our huge
success stories," Mr. Stenson
said. ."She had our support,
but it took somebody to make
an effort."
Ms. McKay-Vaughan said
her beachside neighborhood
experienced a similar renais-
sance in 2001. At that time,
whole neighborhoods were
cited at once for a set list of
criteria, she said.
'"It was hard to complain.
Everybody~ was in the boat
together trying to make
changes," she said. "One per-
son wasn't picked on."
Police and code officers
also worked with citizens on
clean-up projects.
"When they tvere looking
for projects, I had to go back
and say, 'There's not a house
in my neighborhood that
needs (such help),'" Ms.
McKay-Vaughan said. "That is
the way code enforcement
should be."
Similarly, across the coun-
try, code boards and magis-
trates have begun levying
community service hours
instead of fines for violators
who can't pay and having
community service teams
work together to rehab their
homes, Mr. Smart said.
Most importantly, code
enforcement must focus on
neighborhood pride by talkc-
ing about the correlation
between code compliance,
property values and quality of
life, he said.
"Everybody's got pride. Let
them know that code enforce-
ment is not there to give them
a hard time," Mr. Smart said.
"We're not here to hassle you,
but to identify a problem and
help you come up with; a solu-

Stenson said he hqs encoun-
tered heated situations, but
he doesn't get "skittish"
because he is aware of his sur-
roundings and has back-up
available when he needs it.
Two weeks ago in Auirora,
Colo., though, a code enforce-
ment officer was shot and
killed while investigating a
zoning complaint in an apatrt-
ment building.
Mr. Smart said it was the
third shooting of a code ofFi-
ce'rhe could remember.
"It is common for code ofFi-
cers to have verbal abuse,
threats, assaults, because
you're going on private prop-
erty," he said, "and folks get
But, Mr. Smart said, while
code enforcement and polic-
ing are mutually beneficial,
they are also "a lot different."
"It's not a criminal violation,
it's a property violation," he
said, "and property violators
should be treated differently
But at least one local busi-
ness owner said there is not
enough difference here.
Longtime resident Ch~arles
Cameron, whose business has
been cited for code violations
by Mr. Stenson, said he
believes code enforcement
has taken on "an adversarial
ro e.
"The city has made a terri-
ble nustake putting code
enforcement back under the
police department," he said.
"These guys are given a badge
and wear clothes to make
them look like police, then
they try to intimidate you and
talk down to you." .
When Daytona Beach code
enforcement was moved from
its city hall offices to the police
department nearly two years
ago,4~here was a belief that a
three-person teanl' of a code
inspector, fire inspector, and
police officer would take a
proactive approach to helping
neighborhoods, city commis-
siorker Shiela McKay-Vaughan
"But the city didn't really
have the money to spend,"
she said, "and next thing I
knew, they really weren't
working together."
Code enforcement would
serve the city better if inspec-
tors cooperated with resi-
dents, she said.
"It shouldn't be about pun-
ishing people," she said, "it
should be about supporting
people." .

IRROvative code

Ideally, code enforcement
should be used in conjunc-
tion with itmovative commu-

it is this proactive approach
that has cleaned up once-for-
saken neighborhoods.

Broken Window

City leaders across .the
country have changed their
view of code enforcement
since a group of criminolo-
gists, sociologists and psy-
chologists began espousing
the "Broken Window Theory"
in the early 1980s.
Based on innovative com-
munity policing strategies in
New Jerseyin the 'i~s, the the-
ory says that when a person
sees.a single broken window
on a building he may think it
is acceptable to break the rest
of the windows. Eventually
others will join in, destroying
the house and the neighbor-
hood. ,.
"A stable neighborhood of
families who care for their
homes, mind each other's
children, and confidently
frown on unwanted intruders
can change, in a few years or
even in a few months, to an
inhospitable and frightening
jungle," Harvard researchers
James Q. Wilson and George
L. Kelling wrote in 1982 in
"Broken Windows.
"A piece of property is
abandoned, weeds grow up, a
window is' smashed. Adults
stop scolding rowdy children;
the children, emboldened,
become more rowdy. Families
move out, unattached adults
move in ... At this point it is
not inevitable that serious
crime will flourish."

i. Police and code

The belief in this theory,
then, makes it no surprise that
code enforcement has strong
ties to police departments all
over the country ,
"It is getting more and more
common where code
enforcement is moved to the
police department," said Carl
Smart, president of the Amer-
ican Association for Code
Enforcement. "The~ plus of
being in the police depart-
ment is we have our neigh-
borhood units working close-
ly with police, and they're able
to share information."
Code enforcement and
police departments have
aligned iix other local cities.
In Ormond Beach, moving
code from the public works
department to the police
department in 2006 helped to
enforce the code 24 hours a
day, seven days week.
"If we have issues after
hours that we're not able to
address, we can go to (the
police) for help," said Joanne
Naumann, police department
neighborhood improvement
division manager.
There's also added physical
protection. On the job Mr. ~

ture deteriorate before his
eyes. Watching the county ~
repave Derbyshire recently,
though, gave him hope the
westside was' not "forgot-
.ten "
Still he'd like to see more,
from proactive pipe
replacement to street
upgrades, he said.
"Why can't we go through
and put curbs down? Prop-
erty looks much better with
curbs, gutters and side-
walks," he said. "When you
make the community look
better ... people feel better."
Another surefire way to
make the residents feel bet-
ter is through jobs. Mlr. -

matter of days to mow and rake the hay,
fluffit twice a day to keep it dry and then
roll it into 900-pound cylindrical bales.
"It's all technology now," Mr. Benedict
Each acre makes two or three of these
large bales, which sell for $30 to $50, with
lower quality bales feeding cows and
higher quality ales feeding the delicate
digestive systems of horses.
Bales that get wet or stale become
mulch and go for about $12 to cover grass
seed or line roads.
Growing hay today is also different in
that it is not a specialized job.
"Most everybody in agriculture is
diversified," Ms. Gamble- said. "If you're
not, it's a lot like playing Russian
While there are a few small producers
here who still grow hay to feed their alni-
mals, the two largest producers are Con-
solidated Torhoka and Daytona Interna-
tional Speedway, Ms. Gamble said.
And while, yes, some of those fields are
used for ~parking lots and hay is neither
company's core competency, don't think
the fields you see in Daytona Beach aren't
legitimate, working farms.
"So next time somebody says Consoli-
dated Tomoka is doing a tax dodge," Ms.
Gamble said, "remember: they've been

dodging traffic, changing thie radio sta-

may not notice the grassy farms that
blanket the terrain like a brown patch-
work quilt on Clyde Morris and
Williamson Boulevards.
Others may think of the~ felds in pass-
ing as parking lots for Speedway events or
have a bucolic flashback to the days
when agriculture dominated Volusia
In essence, these farms are all of those
They are not, however, what most peo-
ple would associate with the word "farm."
Forget cows and pigs or corn and lima
These farms grow hay
One of the largest hay farms in the area
is at the end of a dirt road that extends
from Cornerstone Boulevard, just south
of LPGA Boulevard and west of
The 400-plus acre farm, owned by W.
Hay LLC, grows, cuts, dries and stores
Bahia and Bermuda grasses, which
become the hay that feeds animals and
protect grass seed.
The farm is a corpor~ate-owned sub-
sidiayo Consolidated Took veap

ment, agricultural and mining company
with golf courses, neighborhoods and
businesses all over the southeast.
Consolidated Tomoka's headquarters
are in the tall office buildings just beyond

the hay fields, a fitting tribute to its small
start 100 years ago as a "going-broke pulp
wood, turpentine company to a multi-
million dollar business," as W. Hay agri-
culture manager Clay Benedict puts it.
Mr. Benedict, who was raised on a farm
and whose father worked -for W. Hay
years ago, has a sense of nostalgia when
he talks about the lost art that is farming.
"Development is coming everywhere. I
live out in Samsula, and I can look down
one way and see New Smyrna Beach and
look down the~ other way and see Port
Orange," he said. "We're the little strip
that's left."
In many ways, haymaking today is as
volatile and natural as it was centuries
The W. H-ay field uses sparse fertilizer
(because of the rising cost) and no irriga-
tion, so it is largely dependent on Mother
Nature, Mr. Benediiet said.
While the fields need rain to grow,'rain
can leech the nutrients from the dried
hay and drastically reduce its value on
the market.
'This is a real gambling man's game,"
said Sharon Gamble, a University of
Florida extension agent who works in
Volusia County.

ing is light years ahead of its humble

honey. And, they pack and ship to all
over the world because people every-
where use honey.
"We sell where the tradition of honey
is in the culture," said Doug McGinnis,
co-owner of the company, located on
U.S. 1 in Edgewater.
Mr. McGinnis said honey is popular
in Mexico and in Middle East countries
.such as Saudi Arabia because the Koran
'lists honey~ as the remedy for all illness-
es. Tropical Blossom also ships to Cana-
da and Japan. .
~"They all love Florida honey because
of the high quality," Mr. McGinnis said.
Tropical Blossom' only sells honey
from beekeepers in Florida and South .
They buy the honeycombs from the
beekeepers and extract the honey for

packing and shipping.
Walking inside the packing ware-
house, the sweet aroma of honey fills
the air and your feet stick to.the floor
with every step.
Honeycombs are stacked on top of
one another, all dripping honey into a

Tropical Blossom sells the honey-
'combs individually and inside some
jars of honey.
Honeycombs can be eaten just like

By Bethany Chambers

trami is never far from city
residents' and employees'
A 30-year city employee
who served as the utilities
supervisor until his death
in July, Mr. Beltrami still
gets calls at city hall.
"Only last week an elder-
ly woman called and said,
'Send Ray!'" said Virginia
Vainella, administrative
assistant to the city manag-
er. "Before she called a
plumber she wanted Ray to
tell her what to do so she
wouldn't be taken advan.
tage of."
Although he had lived in
Ormond Beach since mov.-
ing to Florida from his
hometown of Queens, 1%T.Y.,
Holly Hill was where Mr.
Beltrami spent most of his
time, taking after-hours
calls and helping strangers
as if they were family.
That dedication to the
city earned Mr. Beltrami a
posthumous honor last
week as the city renamed
Holly Hill Avenue, a dead-
end street just north of
Walker Street, "Ray Beltra-
mi Avenue" and marked
Walker between Nova Road
and U.S. I as "Raymond E
Beltrami Memoi-ialWay."

In response to commission : Homeless
Population increasing here'

Nov. 14 is an alarming sign of social degradation for this com-
Both issues have been dealt with during the past 50 years by
competent city leaders across this nation, as well as by our
nation's Supreme Court. Their judgment regarding homeless
persons was, and is, that such individuals may not loiter in
public spaces as to impede the peaceful flow of pedestrian
traffic nor pose an obstacle to any commercial enterprise try-
ing to conduct business.
The ch~urge of vagrancy is applied here and such is prohibit-
edbyl was, foa example pe sonsnwithno per onal identificaa
ti.n n o ades, no evdneo aeilppor by a
-job or other income, may not disrupt the ordinary daily life of
our peaceful citizens. It is against the law. To tolerate these
persons means they will multiply where allowed to gather.
They will panhandle and, in the process, often use an intimi
dating manner to get their way. This should never be tolerated
by peaceful, law-abiding citizens.
"IAdult businesses" have no legal right to corrupt our neigh-
borhoods, business centers, school and playground areas.
They are magnets for criminal activity such as drug traffick-

have~ our own mayor, city councilmen and women, as well as
house lawyers, giving both these serious social evils free rein
mn our community. Instead of allowing this scum inclusion in
our city, our officials should be our first line of defense against
them. From the top down they should stand up for decency,
tell the perpetrators of such corruption to get out of town, and
if they want to challenge, dare them to make their case in
courts of law. Don't just hand our town to abusive parasites.

Mayor Fred Costello responck: You're preaching to the choir I
agree with your comments, but unfortunately, according to our
city attorney, case law does not agree with your and my posi-
tion. The loitering laws are not as clear as you and I believed
them to be.
Howiever even when Idisagree wi~th the interpretation ofour
city attorney, Ihave found it bestserves the residents of Ormond

In feSponse to 'Free newspapers
litter the streets'

I walk beachside every morning and see the Pennzy Saver,
Hometown News and Observer littering our streets. This is a

weekeafter w~epek withe tneo fomuheo eesk beoe, w
actually put them behind homes that bac~k up to Ocean Drive
in New Smyrnia Beach. Every circular drive has two papers at
either end. Why is this allowed to happen?
Look up the owners' addresses; if they li\e ou t of towcn. stop
the delivery.
I did report this to code enhforcemen~t, and it helped for a few
weeks but started again. Please send your staff to pick up the
papers that are left out for two days; obviously no one lives
.Some ~people choose to leave them in their driveway and
drive over them. They blow from the drive into the streets. We
don't need paper or plastic littering our streets and yards.
It looks like we have lost the charm and invited litter. What
"subscriber -only" delivery approach? It is -against code
enforcement, and something has to be dg 9 gl I
makes Newv Smyrna Beach look disgusting.

Regarding suspended school bus driver
I know what she did was not right (stopping on railroad
tracks until kids quieted down), but why doesn't the 'school
board also~ suspend the children who were causing all the
trouble? Why should it be all the driver's faullt?
I know how she feels because I drove a school bus up north
for 10 years, and I finally had to quit because the children~
would get out of control. When Itold the teachers or principal,
they wouldn't ~do anything about it (and the kids knew this).
Their famous line wias, "We don't want to make tvaves."
Come on, you guys; do your job. A little wave never hurt

Bus driver should have received harsher
Since When is deliberately stopping a school bus on a rail-
road track and threatening to leave students there with a train
comnlhg not a crime or at least grounds for dismissal?
This driver should have been arrested;or given .a citation.
The crime was caught on tape. The schiool boj'ard~ and the
police treated this crime as a minor ir~fraction..
There are good dlrive~rs that were laid off at the end of the last
school year or given attendant jobs. There are many unem-
ployed Floridians as well who would gladly do her jolb in a
safe, secure manner,
This whole situation is outrageous, and if I had a child, I
would never allow my child to ride this bus as long as she was
driving, with or without restraining. I would publicly protest
her still being employed by the Volusia County School Board.
This incident could have had major implications had the
bus stalled or had she been unable to back her buss of the
tracks in time.
It would have made deadly headlines across the nation,
instead of hidden on one of the back pages.

prove your age.

be the only one speaking out. What is wrong with our court
system when such importance is pushed aside until after the
Since Sen. Obama has not produced his birth certificate, do
we really know he was born in Hawaii? He seems to think he is
above the law. Maybe Arnold Schwarzenegger will be able to
run for president.
Sen. Obama really played the we-were- abandoned-by-my-
father and I-was-reared-by-a-single-mother cards well.
He signed the document that he would take the Democrat's

money not spent? Does he get to keep it?
What will he sign as president and not keep his word on? I
was reared that your word is your bond.
We should also remember Sen. Obama has not been sworn
in yet. We the people should demand he come forth with the
truth and the documents as to who he really is.

BUSinesses do not pay' taxes
I read with dismay the article on the front page ~that New
Smyrna Beach is going to hire an assistant city manager and
then the ranit about the high taxes in Edgewaiter. The idea that
the higher taxes paid by commercial enterprises will save the
homeowners is crazy!
This is for everyone (mostly politicians) who think busi-
Snesses pay taxes. They don't; they never will! They collect the
taxes and~ pass them on to the government entity that levied

chase the product or service they offer for sale. There is only
one source for government dollars -you and me!

A quick fiX
The problem with energy policy is the volatility of the price
of oil.
The alternatives and the high level of investment in green
energy cannot work with unstable prices. What we do for
peanuts, sugar, cotton and other agricultural products we
need to do for oil.
First, the program sets a domestic floor price around $100 a
barrow with quotas for NAFTA Canada and yMexico and
some close friends.
Middle Eastern oil pays a dutyi between the world price and
the domestic price. This sets gasoline prices about $3, well
below other` industrial countries. The government benefits
from a windfall profits tax on domestic production ~and the
duties on foreign oil, which is invested in a national power
grid, public transport, high-speed rail, research in alternative
energy and job creation generated by private mnvestrnents
Possible because of the stable prices' of energy.
In the past and present, good ideas and economic alterna-
tives have been killed by a rapid drop in the price of oil.

More on greed
The definition that I have for greed is insatiatee longing,
especially for wealth,'
The ranter in the Nov. 14 issue claims that greed does not
work mi the real world. Get real, man. 'Greed is the core of the
real world. If it weren't for greed, there afouldn't be the entre-
preneurs and industrialists who have made the American
economy the richest mn the world.
As to his point that the government is at fault: greed plays a
part mn that, too! His opinion that we must keep the govern-
ment out of the economy is unrealistic and contradictory (e.g.
Except wise regulations and oversight an oxymoron?).
When greed comes into the conversation, one cannot help
but to think of the oil companies and the money they are mak-
ing out of this unfortunate economic situation that the world
Einds itself in. My wife made a good pomnt when she asked wliy
the oil companies cannot come to the aid of the automakers.
There's a certain poetic justice in that. After all, that's where
Inoste of the oil. companies' outrageous profits have been
Finally, there is, perhaps, some small comfort to be gained
from the obvious conclusion that with less oil being con-
sumed, there is less effect on the ozone layer -

Congressmen should have term limits
I agree 100 percent with the writer who indicated we should
have term limits for members of the U.S. Congress.
Most of these officials remain in office indefinitely, not
because of voter approval but because-of voter complacency.
Please send around the petition so I can sign it!

Stock' market situation nothing to celebrate
For a long ~time, I have been puzzled by the little party that
goes on at the stock exchange on the closing bell.
Since my portfolio is down by 40 percent and the market
drops up to 600 points in a day, what mn blazes are those peo-
ple celebrating, clapping and whooping it up for?
Is there some secret we should be in on? Do they go to
funeralS and disasters and have a party?
PleaSe let me know so I can feel happy, too!

Bailout doesn't help AmericanS
I am concerned as to the fallout of these huge bailouts, for
eXample AIG and possibly General Motors. What kind of
precedence does that set? Does that open the doors for Cir-
cuit City and like industries that have declared bankruptcy,
such as Shells restaurant, car dealers throughout the country
and other business cartels around the country to go to the
government for relief from their predicament as did AIG?
To go further, a homeowner who has lost his job and is on
food stamps could declare bankruptcy and go to the govern-
ment for a million-dollar loan and live the life of Riley.
One can see the fallout of this bankruptcy situation and

Then Ed began telling me

more and more. With Ed on

all to attain "my goal weight."

outdoor bar created fr~om

The. Cooley home, next

door to the Petersons on
Magnolia Street, was also
built in 1915. The house is
surrounded by a wide porch
on three sides. One of its
unique features is that it has
two front doors. The house,
renovated over the years,
had been stripped of many
of its original architectural
details. The Cooleys have
been returning as much
original detail to the house
as possible, even uncovering
an old coquina fireplace
under a red brick facade.

dirF ay, November 28, 2008

If you eatch a nice sunny
day there are even benches
for dozing and catching
few rays. You might want to
bring along a few turkey and
cranberry sandwiches to
keep you company.
Fishing with the family for
the holidays: You just Can't
beat it!

Dan Smith has fished the
waters of Volusia County for
40 years. When he's not
fishing, the retired contrac-
tor is heavily involved with
'the Ormond Beach Histori-
cal Trust. For questions or
commjents send~ an e-mail to


give you and the youngsters
all the fun you can handle.
Get the kids to help turn over
the leaf pile for fresh earth-
worms, and then head over
to Lake Monroe in Sanford-
The shell crackers will be
waiting to put up a stout
Do you remember your
own excitement when as a
6- or 8-year-old you saw

grandma, mom and dad and
certainly the kids. If you have
toddlers along, be sure to
provide a stick so they may
joust with the crabs after you
have them in the bucket.
Don't discount trolling as
good family fun. Plan a long,
slow boat ride in a spot
where the sightseeing is to
your liking, and put at least
four rods out back. Dragging
along a plug or spoon is a
great way to fish and it frees
up both hands for leftover
cold turkey or a slab of
pumpkin pie.
Another great family
outing is a fishing trip to
either Ponce or Matanzas

Inets. Both will provide surf,
river and inlet fishing within
a few yards of each other.
Take along lots of shrimp for
the drum, flounder and
blues that are always hungry
around the inlets.
Visit the local fishing piers
for good family fun. For a
small fee, you will be able to
fish out past the breakers
and catch various sea
creatures. Sunglow, Main
Street and Flagler are all fine
fishing platforms. Take
along stout rods spooled
with at least 15-pound line.
A steel leader would also be
a good choice for pier

your bright red bobber dive
once, then twice, then go
straight down? Now is a
great time to duplicate that
fun for the kids in your life.
You may get the same
effect with a bucket of
shrimp here on the east side
of the county. The many
piers, parks and docks that
line the Intracoastal Water-
way will have the young ones
s luealing with delight as
they do battle with man-
grove snappers or pinfish.
Of course the ultimate
family fun is crabbing. All
you need is a little twine, a
dip net and any cheap meat
for bait. Anyone can crab .

peaceful and happy
Thanksgiving with good
food, family and football. It
is truly an all-American
holiday and easily my
favorite. I don't have to make
excuses for my poor gift
choices and can concentrate
on overeating, which I am
very good at. Best of all, the
kids are out of school and
most folks get a four-day
weekend so that all may
enjoy a bit of fishing,
Right now, the speckled
perch are hitting in the lakes
along the St. Johns River, and

With only one true star

to pull the plug oh the
Skins Game. What was
once a staple of Th~anks-
giv.ing has become the
fruit cake of the holiday.

Somewhere along the
way, the Skins Game forgot
that it was merely an
entertaining way for us
golfers to get a fix well into
the fall months. Before the
Golf Channel came along,
we pretty much hadn't
seen any golf for almost
two months by the time
Thanksgiving rolled
around. We were desperate
to watch and enjoy the: fun
the four players seemed to
be having.
This year the headliner
is Phil Mickelson, who has
done little if anything this
golf season. Lefty is joined
Sby two-time defending
champion Steven Ames;
K.J. Choi, a great player
who speaks little English
(this should make for great
TV); and U.S. Open
runner-up Rocco Mediate
(if his back holds up). Paul
Goydos had an automatic
invite ~thanks to winning
The Players Championship

That was then, this is
now, and my how times
have changed. Last year's
Skins Game featured the
lovable pair of Fred
Couples and Johh Daly, yet
saw its rating plummet to
a paltry 1.7 on Sunday. The
event that once promised
suspense has become
uninteresting and difficult
to watch.
The secret 1;o thie event's
success was far from
secret. Bring together four
big-name golfers who have
a little personality and let
them play. The banter we
enjoyed watching Lee
Trevino or Fuzzy Zoeller
needle their opponents
kept us engaged for a
while. Then we had Annika
Sorenstam. Nothing wrong
with Annika's golf game,
but she isn't the most
talkative players on the
Tiger last played in the
event in 2004, as a favor to
his good friend Sorenstam.
Oddly enough, the Skins

appy Thanksgiving!
this is my favorite
holiday of the year. Not
just because of the food,
but because of many
things. I enjoy seeing my
family, and I especially
love that I haven't been
reminded every time I go
into a store that it's just a
mere eight or ten weeks
One of the things I love
about Thanksgfyring and
the long weekend it brings
used to be the Skins Game.
I can remember loading
up my plate for the third
time with leftovers and
sitting down.with my
mother and father to
watch Arnold Palmer, Jack
Nicklaus, Tom Watson and
Gary Player compete for
some cold-hard cash that
weekend, .
Oh, how we wished it
were their own money,
taken from their own
wallets that they were
playing for. I'm betting the
fun-loving rivalries would

have taken an interesting
turn as the pot grew larger
and larger. '
The Skins Game, likely
the most famous of golf's
"Silly Season" events'
began in 1983. In 1986, it
captured the highest TV
ratings of the year. An
impressive feat if you
consider what ha opened
at Augusta National that
.Over the first decade of
its existence, the Skins
Game drew a larger
audience than the U.S.
Open. The Skins drew a
5.65 rating compared to
5.25 for our National
Championship. In 1996,
Tiger Woods' first appear-
ance produced the largest
audience ever for the
event, drawing a 6.2

If you are one of te many
Americans who are buying a
live tree this year, here are a
few tips to help you with the
Since live trees in our area
are trucked very long distances
to their destinations, picking
out the freshest looking tree is
extremely important.
Make suixe your tree is green
with minimal brown branches.
Check the needles of the tree
and be sure that they are
flexible and do not fall off
when you brush tIhe branches.
Another good check is to
bounce th~e tree lightly on the
cut end to see how aggressively
the leaves fall off the branches.
Avoid trees that shed leaves
aggressively with this proce-
Another point to consider ip
the location the tree will be
placed. He sure to get accurate
measurements of the area, so
you can get a tree that is
tailored to its location.
You have finally picked out
youir prized tree, so what's
next? The most important task
is to get your tree in its stand

If it has not been done at the

an inch from the bottom before
mounting in the stand. This
will greatly aid the tree in

Once the tree is mounted, be
sure to add water immediately.
The sooner all this is done, the
Now it's time to decorate
your new tree with all the
goodies you have been collect-
ing the past couple of weeks.
Use caution when using lights,
especially if you use the larger
C-7 type lights. As long as the
tree remains moist and the
needles pliable, the tree will
not be a huge fire hazard. As
the tree ages and you get near
the end of the season, more
caution is advised, since the
.tree structure will become
drier in nature.
Now that all the work is
done, the time has come to sit

The Norfolk pine does not
regenerate its lost limbs or
needles, so it is important to
stay on a steady watering
schedule. If the tree is over
watered, you will begin to see
areas of bright yellow ~needles

condition, be sure the plant is
not standing in water. If you

water can drain from the pot. It

Holiday shopping not justbuiness; it's personal

is the core of a community, the
lifeblood. Without our local business
partners, we would be left with only
the large national chains with no ties
to our community, only looking to
take our money and run when times
get rough.
So, this holiday season, I have
made a pact with myself to purchase
everything I possibly can from local
purveyors. Bikes, music, wine,
gourmet food, books, even clothes
can be found in businesses owned by
those who live among us.
Sure, I might pay a little more, but
that extra coin will stay in my
community, not be shipped off to
some corporate headquarters up

into a place and talk to the same
person who sold you an item.
Holiday dinners and parties? Local
restaurants only. There's something
to be said about walking into a place
"where everyone knows your'name."
ilot that all locally owned busi-
nesses are perfect. Many of them are
owned by people who have never
been in business for themselves
before. But because they dreamed
and dared, I thmnk we can cut them a
little slack while they work out the
kinks. If we stick with them now,
think of the gratitude they will shovw
us later.
I hope you will join me in patron-
izing locally owned businesses this
holiday season. Because it's not just
business, it's personal.

I cannot tell you how many times
I have seen a small business open up
in my community, say to myself,
"Oh, that's great, I'll have to get in
there," and then drive by months
later and realize that I have yet to
make that first stop to see what this
new venture is all about.
This frustrates me. My intentions
are good. And maybe if I had seen
various advertisements reminding
me about the place, I would have
made that visit.
The best part is when it's locally
owned; it's not just a business, but a
person possibly a neighbor or
someone I know from the gym or the
park or school events.
It's personal.
I think of the excitement they
must have had when first getting the
idea for the business, putting it
together and actually seeing it take
shape. Then, as the excitement
slowly fades and the reality of
success or failure is in plain view, the
realization of such a brave move
takes hold. .
It is all of our responsibility to help
our local business people succeed. It

always been by simple word of
mouth because of the great service
and fresh food.

Holiday shopping has seemingly taken
on a life of its own over the years. While
gifts under the tree has been a holiday tra-
dition as long as most of us can remem-
ber, come the day after Thanksgiving, the
race is officially on. Shoppers trek to the
mall inl droves, and stores advertise super
sales in the hopes of beating their com-
petitors for the all important holiday dol-
For many shoppers, however, the dollar
bill doesn't exactly come into the equa-
tion. Oftentimes, plastic is the payment
method holiday shoppers use most, and
that's more out of necessity than personal
choice. While many shoppers would pre-

and distance to your full shots, as
well as several to improve your put-

The latest product from SKLZ is
the Gyro Swing. This product uses a
gyroscope in the clubhead that
forces your swing to stay on-plane
and grooves a perfectly ,timed
release. If you swing incorrectly the
gyroscope immediately lets you
know you are off-plane and helps
guide you to where you should be.
Even though-our winters aren't

avoid the pitfalls commonly
associated with paying with plas-
*Shop for the right credit card.
Not all credit cards are the same,
and shoppers should compan-
son shop for the right card mu8,1
like they would shop for the right
deal on a gift. Ideally, shoppers
should find the card with the
lowest interest rate. A credit card
is essentially a loan, and the
longer the balance goes without
being fully paid off, the more
you'll be paying in interest
charges. Therefore, the lower the
interest rate, the less you'll be
paying, just like a regular loan.
While it's ideal to pay balances
off immediately, for many people
that's not an option. So shop
around for the credit card that
offers the best interest rate, and
use that for holiday purchases.
*Use credit cards for travel
e senses. Anyone who has tray-
eled during the holiday season
knows that it's rare travel. plans

ing of used rechargeable batteries!
Most of the portable electronic
'devices purchased during the holidays -
such as cell phones, PDAs, Blackberrys,
digital cameras, laptop computers and
mp3 players are powered by recharge-
able batteries. Though rechargeable bat-
teries are a long-lasting and reusable
power source, they will eventually begin
to lose their charge after approximately
1,000 charges. When replacing a device
with rechargeable batteries, instead of
tossing the old ones in the trash or
hoarding an electronics stash in a stor_
age closet or junk drawer, recycle them
at participating Call2Recycle retailers
across the country.

Meloyde Lewis, owner of Miss Priss,

months ago.
"We've doubled our space," she
said. "People are catching on. Con-

Ms. Meyer said the recent economic
crisis will put a damper on some holi-

be the solution.
"People are cutting back," she said.
"You can fid a lot of things for people
(at resale and thrift stores)."
With consignment, shoppers bring
in items (typically clothing) and usu-
ally receive between 40 and 60 percent
of the selling price for the items.
Then the store typically sells the
item for between 50 to 75 percent less
than what the original price was.
Customers who bring in clothes get
a little extra cash for hoh'day shopping
and clean out their closets while shop-
pers get great bargains, Ms. Lewis

store. In addition to women's cloth-
ing, she also sells some home furnish-

Both Ms. Lewis and Ms. Ondo said
they sell only high quality merchan-

ed, eliminating any fears about racks
of dirty, torn clothing.
"We really only take high-end stuff,"
Ms. Lewis said. "I'm real picky about
that. I take it seriously."
While consignment shops are typi-
cally considered more high-end and

In another study, 58 percent of con-

first" when shopping.
Volusia County business owners
and managers said they have found
the same.
The Daytona Flea & Farmers Mar-

Sunday year-round, has 600 inde-

owned by Volusia County residents,
said Shannon Woodrum, assistant
marketing director.
The market is perfect for the con-
sumer dedicated to saying money and
the planet, he said.
"(You're) keilping your money local
and saving fuel at the same time," he
said. "You've got a lot of things you
need in one stop. That seems to be an
attractive thing for people."
The market offers heavily discount-
ed designer perfumes, jewelry and
surfing gear, which should be best-
sellers this holiday, said Becky

Steinke, marketing director.
Mr. Woodrum said he also expects
computer and electronics stores that
"have anything you'd get at Best Buy"
and the "As Seen on TV" stores, which
don't require the wait or shipping
costs, to be big draws at the flea mar-
ket this holiday season,
